Not Afraid to Get My Hands Dirty

It’s vintage time baby!  That is correct, the grid has been hit with the Vintage bug this month  with many events having creations in that theme.  I adore vintage, especially that rockabilly vibe and things from the 50s/60s.

The Forest Cafe

flickr look 508Today’s post is filled with incredible newness from Kuro that you can find currently at Home Show 2014 or at the Main Store and also from Convair that can be found at the April round of Fameshed.  The Forest Cafe is a perfect little place to have a cup of coffee or for those looking for a different living space I think this could work too as a small retreat.  I always love Luana’s work, it has this certain shabby sorta style with really unique pieces that can be mixed and matched together from all her different sets.  One of my favorites so far is the adorable Wild Mugs that is a mug holder made out of horseshoes, it’s one of those pieces that although made for a western theme could be used in so many different kitchens or cafes.  I was also thrilled to see  the Fireplace Tools from Convair, this is something I have been hoping for for a long time and Tobias did not disappoint.  It was also a perfect fit along side his Wood Stove for a relaxing sit here in the cafe.  For a larger view to see details just click the pics and I hope everyone has a great Monday!

My Little Red Caboose

Today’s post is pretty big thanks to the new Transit Life Caboose from Upper Room that is currently available for the latest round of The Challenge.  I found it inspiring and challenging to decorate this small space in a way that I would love if I were to live in it, because to be honest I kinda dug the caboose because how perfect is a red caboose?  My decorating style included several furniture pieces that are part of the Transit Life set and mixed in lots of other newness including the Baker Street sign by Collage that is also available for The Challenge.  I also had to include the fabulous S’mores Camp set from Cheeky Pea and mesh Mums from MudHoney.  All pics can be made larger with a click.
